Using Pumpkin Pie Spice coffee creamer in different ways
March 13, 2018 8:08am CST
I was given a brand new container of International delight Pumpkin Pie Spice liquid coffee creamer It was expiring soon so it needed to be used up. I used it in my coffee and did not like it so I got thinking it could probably be used in some recipes. So searched Pinterest and found a lot of recipes! The first one I tried was Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip it didn’t have much flavor I think the recipe used to much cool whip. The second was a Pumpkin Smoothie. I didn’t have as much ice as I needed so that could be a reason it was too sweet and odd tasting. Third was a Caramel Pumpkin Spice latte. I didn’t want to drink it warm so I froze the coffee and creamer and made my kids and I an iced coffee version. It was good but not great. Fourth was Pumpkin Pie Spice French Toast. I thought this was absolutely delicious but my kids didn’t like it The last thing I made was Pumpkin Pie Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. The cake itself didn’t have much flavor but the frosting was really good. I was surprised they didn’t add any of the creamer to the frosting though. The photo is the food I made. I still had more left in the container but it was past expiration by that point and I didn’t have the ingredients I needed to make anymore so I dumped it.

All of them look good sorry to hear that they did not taste good. I hope it does not discourage you from using the creamer again.During the holiday times it is one of my favorite flavor of creamers I use and I love it. I never thought to try it in recipes though I like iced coffes so I might have to try that.

I never thought to use a flavored creamer in recipes! I would totally try the french toast - but interesting that your kids didn't like it (how many times have I tried out recipes I thought my kids would love and they ended up taking a bite and that was it ). I guess a little creamer goes a long way for making all those things!

I will drink creamer until there are lumps in it when pouring, maybe a week or two past the expiration. I've never gotten sick from doing that. I don't much like using that flavor in coffee either. I found it's quite good with hot chocolate. I'm surprised that it wasn't that great in the other recipes you tried, but maybe you'd need to add other ingredients to help the pumpkin taste be stronger. Maybe things like nutmeg or something else. Odd that your kids didn't much like the french toast.

@MarshaMusselman my kids are so picky! Some of these recipes I have written down to maybe try again in the future and added a note about what should be added for it to taste better next time. A lot of people I know will not eat anything past the expiration date or if they do they won't do that with dairy. I eat just about anything as long as it doesn't smell spoiled. Yesterday an orange I was peeling for my son was rotting on the bottom and had a bit of mold. Once I peeled it I saw it was not on the inside. I ate that one and gave my son a better looking one.
